Some features have been:
Several games of Loka, River Horse Productions four sided chess based game. It plays very similar to chess with a few rules changes mainly terrain squares and a dice based combat system based on bonus from the mentioned terrain and reinforcements from other pieces in position to take or defend the squares. There is also no check rule as such so feel free to dangle a nicely placed King if you wish, but bear in mind you still lose instantly if he's taken.
Another game of Kingsburg at my Uncles house, but this time with more than just the two of us playing. We got a chance to play with a full complement of five players. The game play didn't change much, just made the productive seasons more competitive in regards to allocating dice for resources. The Eldest ended up taking the victory but there was only ten victory points between first and last so a nice close game all the way through.

|Final turn. Victory to us, but quite a cost|
